This episode of Summer Amplified is brought to you by Ram Trucks. Built to Serve

Summer tailgates are an easy way to enjoy the nice weather and spend some time with friends and family. In this episode of ITK: Summer Amplified, we show a few game-changing hacks that will help you make the most out of your next tailgate. These tips will help you maximize your tailgate time and have great food and drinks.

Tailgate Hack 1: Make yourself easy to find

If friends or family are meeting you at your tailgate, make it easy for them to find you by tying up helium-filled balloons. Tell your friends what color balloons to look for, and they’ll find you in no time.

Tailgate Hack 2: Transform an inflatable pool into a giant cooler

Fill an inflatable pool with ice to create an oversized cooler that can store enough drinks for everyone. This way, you don’t need to bring multiple coolers, plus the pool can deflate to free up space in your car.

Tailgate Hack 3: Bring a transportable grill

Why have snacks when you can make a full meal? Bring a transportable grill to your next tailgate for an easy way to serve fresh burgers, veggies or hot dogs.

Tailgate Hack 4: Keep it competitive with games

Bring a few games along to keep everyone entertained. Indulge in some friendly competition with transportable lawn games like cornhole or Jenga.
